This is a really good show too, very similar to the 4/17 Download Series show (of course), and I think the sound is decent -

4/17, 18, and 20 are also university shows....must have been the theme for this tour!

April '69 was a powerful month for sure - at the same time I think I can hear them unwinding from the intensity of Feb/March - and as I mentioned earlier, expanding the setlist quite a bit - in May they could get quite loose onstage.
Here's an uninspired high-school show with a terrible Hard to Handle! (Charlie Miller calls this the worst-ever show.)

I don't often listen to AUDs, with all the great SBDs out there. But there's some amazing guitar work on Morning Dew. I see Lossless Legs is redoing 69. Hopefully they'll include that night. Thanks for the rec, LiA!

BTW, I'm beginning to wonder whether WVU has paid off the refs in their game with Pitt.
